Monarch Bay Optometry

Welcome to our office.


March 20, 2020


Dear Monarch Bay Optometry Patient,


As the COVID-19 (AKA Coronavirus) pandemic has evolved over the past few weeks, we have done all that we can to support the health and safety of both our patients and staff. To stay true to that, we’ve made the difficult decision to follow the  CDC guidelines to temporarily close our physical practice for routine eye care beginning Friday, March 20, 2020.  


Our office will be virtually open for phone calls and limited Telemedicine.


Office by telephone: Mon - Fri 11am-3pm  (949) 487-3937

Limited Telemedicine: by appointment only

In office Urgent Care: by appointment only


Monarch Bay Optometry will do our part to “help flatten the curve.”  Be assured that neither my team, any of our doctors or patients have had any known exposure, tested positive, or are under quarantine for COVID-19.


We plan to re-open our practice on Thursday, April 2 but will reassess circumstances as we get closer and keep you updated. Although this will be challenging for all of us, we are confident in the strength of our community and know we can get through this together. 


If you have an appointment scheduled during this time we will be reaching out to you to help you reschedule for a future date. If you need information on your glasses or contact lenses or need to order contact lenses, please contact our office at  If you need to order contact lenses there is free delivery when 2 boxes are ordered.  


Should you have an urgent eye care issue, feel free to reach out to us @ 714 482 3458.


We will continue to monitor any changes with guidelines issued by the CDC and or local, state and national public health authorities.


Thank you for being a valued patient of Monarch Bay Optometry and for your continued support.


Your health and safety is our priority.
